Pacific Island Water Tanks


Project Description

A contract through the Secretariat of the Pacific Community to supply water tanks and appurtenances to Fais Island (Micronesia) and Koror (Palau).

Project Overview

The tanks, fittings and other equipment required for installation were sourced from a company in New Zealand and then travelled 6000 kilometres via transhipments out of Auckland, Suva (Fiji), Majuro (Marshall Islands) and Yap (Micronesia) to finally reach their destinations.

An added difficulty on Fais Island was the fact that it lacks any form of jetty to unload vessels, local islanders were enlisted to assist in transferring the goods from the ship moored offshore, to the island itself. An illustration of Unit Exports’ capability to assist with projects in all corners of the globe, no matter how remote, whilst also overcoming the challenges that can become apparent through delivery of goods.
